Troopers find unusual passenger after semitruck crash in SoDo

SEATTLE — Troopers in Seattle’s SoDo area found an unusual passenger in the cab of a rolled over semitruck Thursday morning.

Shortly before 10 a.m., a semi rolled over on the eastbound Interstate 90 on-ramp from Edgar Martinez Drive South.

The driver was OK, but troopers found something that haunted them: A copilot in the truck’s cab who could not provide identification and appeared to have not had a meal in years.

The rider — a skeleton clad in an orange vest — declined medical attention and appeared to be unrattled by the crash.

The ramp was only partially blocked and traffic was getting by on the left until a tow truck arrived at 11:30 a.m.

At noon, the Washington State Department of Transportation tweeted that the crash was cleared and the ramp was open.

That was good news for drivers, especially those who are not fans of Halloween.
